Taken on a recent visit to Blean Woods. My first attempt at butterflies. Not as sharp as I had hoped, but I'm still learning.

Unfortunately, we forgot to take the macro lens with us, so I had to resort to the standard 70-210 lens! One of my best shots, but I hope to get some better ones with the proper lens next time!

f6.0
1/500 sec
ISO200

How do you get the background to blur? Is it the closeup lens that does that (I'm still learning too...)

Great composition though, congratulations on the shot SmileHave you tried using high drive? I got a series of photos of a butterfly fluttering away. Looks better if the photos are put together Smile

A nice shot considering the lens you were using, i think butterflies are one of the hardest subjects to photograph properly.

I must try to get more shots of them in my portfolio.

(from Della_W)
thank you all.

karski - more luck than judgement, but I think it was due to the aperture setting.
